My child was in a car accident at 6 months old. He was sitting in a rear-facing child restraint when we were rear-ended. A week after the accident we noticed his eyes rolling back in his head periodically. It was checked out by several specialists (neurologist, optomitrist, and opthamalogist) who determined he would grow out of it. He grew out of it at 3 years old. Now he is 4 and a half and I am seeing his eyes rolling back in his head again. It happens when he is tired, stressed and upset mostly. I am concerned that there may be some long term damage that is showing up now. Additionally, he also has some sleep problems. I suspect that he had whiplash at the time of the accident.
His eyes just roll back for a brief moment. We were told they are not seizures, but rather an exaggerated reflex.
Anyone experience this?
